Hi everyone! Today I am back with an easel card. I have used one of my favorite collections for my card, the Denim & Friends collection. The card was made for a colour challenge at the Norwegian card magazine Ett Trykk, with the colours mint and turquoise. I tried to find some suitable Maja papers to fit the challenge.

The cute image is from Magnolia and the Denim Collection, and I have coloured it with Distress Ink, re-inkers and Markers. The dies used are also from Magnolia.

The texts are from Ett Trykk.

Under you can view the card from the side. I made it for my friend’s 40th anniversary.

I have made the flowers myself. I have placed them both on the upper part of the card, and on the lower part. So when it is open, it looks like the flowers are together in a way.

Want to see how they are made? Here I have some photos from the making.

I lay the flowers down on a newspaper, and spray them with water (the flower dies are from Magnolia).

Then I curl them up, and let them to dry.

When they are dry, I curl them up again, and place them together with some Wild Orchid Crafts stamens in the middle. Here comes a list of papers used:

Hi everyone! I hope you are fine. Here I am with a decorated paper bag, using the amazing new papers from the collection Joyous Winterdays.

Joyous-Winterdays-P

I have used only two pattern papers and the post stamps are cut out of a mini paper from the same collection.

Here you have a better view of the cute stamps.

The main image is from Magnolia, and I have coloured Tilda with Distress Ink. And used the same colours as I find in the papers.

The sentiments are from Stempelglede.

Here you might see the layers better. All the flowers are from Wild Orcid Crafts.

Here is a paper bag I have decorated with gorgeous papers from the collection I wish.

I-wish-P

Only days ago I came back from a holiday in beautiful Croatia! I stayed in a beautiful small village called Cavtat, just outside the city Dubrovnik. I was told that the people in Dubrovnik first settled down in Cavtat, before they had to escape and settled down in Dubrovnik. I guess thats why they built that fantastic city wall -to keep the enemies away. In Croatia it was still Summer, and blue sky every day! Inspite of that I manage to get the flu and sinusitis. Luckily this happened the day before we went home, so I really enjoyed my time there.

But because of all this, I had no new card to show you. This paper bag was published in the magazine Ett Trykk last February. But I have saved it for the blogs when it was time to show some winter/Christmassy inspirations. I have made it to show my style of crafting.

IMG_5924

The image from Magnolia is coloured with Distress Ink, re-inkers.

IMG_5927

I have decorated with different types of flowers, cheese cloth, wycinanka, die cuts and pearls.

IMG_5941

I have added some Frantage around the image, which is matching the colours of the papers perfectly. The edges are sewed with my sewing machine.

Hi everyone! Today I will show you a card I made for the magazine Ett Trykk with Maja papers of course;) I have used the beautiful papers from the Sofiero Collection, new edition, and also a Monochromes paper.

Sofiero-P1

The stamps are from Stempelglede. I have painted the butterflies with Distress Ink, re-inkers.

The flowers are from Wild Orchid crafts. And under them I have added some Sissal grass. I just love the spring feeling these papers gives! So maybe this card can brighten up a dark and windy Autumn day.

Here you see the different layers with the lovely Maja papers, doilies, cheese cloth and laces.
